MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks are inviting the next generation of basketball stars to hone in their skills this summer during the annual Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Camps.

This year’s camps will include 11 week-long sessions and one weekend session at gyms throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Bucks officials say the first camp tips-off on June 6 with the final camp of the summer beginning on Aug. 15.

Each session is open to boys and girls ages 7-16 and features fun and motivational instruction from the Bucks Summer Basketball Camps’ expert coaches. Campers will focus on basketball basics like shooting, ball-handling, passing, rebounding, defense, and one-one-one drills to advance their games to the next level. Each day, participants will put their skills to the test in both live games and shooting contests against players of similar age and skill level.

Each athlete who attends a Bucks Basketball Camp will also receive a complimentary ticket to a 2016-17 Bucks home game along with a camp giveaway package that includes a camp T-shirt, basketball, drawstring bag, wristband, a commemorative certificate of achievement and an individual player evaluation filled out by the coaching staff.

New to this summer’s slate of camps is the Bucks Basketball Mini Camp. This camp, which runs from July 8-10, is designed for beginners and youngsters, ages 4-6.

All camps, unless otherwise noted, are Monday-Thursday (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.) and Friday (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.). The complete schedule for the 2016 Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Camps is below. For more information, or to register for a session, log on to bucks.com/camps.
